Public health professionals are dedicated to promoting, protecting, and improving the health of their communities. Their ability to analyze, understand, and share data is core to that mission.

LiveStories helps public health organizations across the United States communicate their data more efficiently, build the narrative around their data, streamline reporting, and increase community engagement. 

“We look at all sorts of information when it comes to the study of public health and what exists in our community. Visualizing this information in LiveStories brings us all on the same page to make decisions collectively.”
— Kathryn W., Springfield-Greene County Health Department
